The Ho Chi Minh Museum was inaugurated in Ban Dong in Phichit province of Thailand, 350km north of Bangkok capital, on September 1.

This is the third memorial site of late President Ho Chi Minh in Thailand, following ones in Udon Thani and Nakhon Phanom provinces.

The inauguration ceremony was held by the Thai Ministry of Tourism and Sports, local authorities and the Embassy of Vietnam in Thailand, with the participation of about 300 overseas Vietnamese and Thai people.

Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to Thailand Nguyen Hai Bang recalled that President Ho Chi Minh stayed and worked for revolutionary activities in Phichit province from July 1928 until late 1929. During his stay, he encouraged solidarity and the fight against illiteracy among overseas Vietnamese in Thailand.

The diplomat also expressed his hope that the museum will become a famous cultural and tourist destination of Phichit province and Thailand in general.

For his part, Thai Minister of Tourism and Sports Weerasak Kowsurat noted that the museum will contribute to deepening the friendship between Vietnam and Thailand.

Covering an area of 6,400 square metres, the Ho Chi Minh Museum, along with the Ho Chi Minh Memorial Site, is located in the Thailand-Vietnam Friendship Centre in Phichit province.

Construction of the museum began in December 2013 at a cost of more than 30 million THB (about 915,000 USD) funded by the Thai government.
